First Look: 2010 Suzuki RM-Z250

Fuel-injection and 13,500rpm rev limit for Suzuki's new 250cc rocketship




2010 Suuzki RM-Z250 - price TBA

FIRST IMAGES just in of Suzuki's 2010 RM-Z250 four-stroke motocrosser.

The machine features an all-new fuel-injected engine, new chassis and revised suspension. The bike's steering geometry is changed from last year, too.

The new RM-Z250’s 249cc, four-stroke liquid cooled, DOHC powerplant revs to an unbelievable 13,500rpm. That's going some for a single-cylinder engine.

The motor features titanium valves, a 43mm throttle body with progressive throttle linkage and a battery-less fuel pump, a stronger and more-rigid crankshaft, revised cam timing and intake ports for enhanced high-rpm performance and an aluminium-alloy cylinder.

Price and availability TBA.
